It is important to understand the different roles solicitors and real estate agents play in conveyancing. Solicitors are conveyancing experts who have been trained in this area of law and have the competence to guide you through a transaction to ensure your interests are protected. As each property is different, so is each conveyance.
Your solicitor can advise you on the need for special conditions and other legal matters which touch on conveyancing law. A real estate agent is not qualified to give legal advice on the contract or to draft clauses or modify the pre-printed contract in any way.
